This Toilet Paper Roll Crochet pattern came about because my kids are to short to reach the only cabinet in the bathroom that’s above the toilet so I had to leave a Toilet Paper Roll on the back of the toilet, which looked tacky. I wished I would make it look better, then it hit me. I remembered my Grandmother used to have a crocheted Toilet Paper Roll cover over hers. It was of a little lady in a dress. The dress part covered the roll and the plastic part of the doll just stayed put in the center. I remember playing with this doll while I was in the bathroom as a child, there were no smart phones back then to entertain you.

 

Plus my grandmother had a guest bathroom that was right across the hall from the bathroom and it always got scared because she had like 100 dolls in there! I’d think of all those little eyes that stared at you as you passed by. LoL 

 

This design can be made in a few hours so this is another quick gift to make for a family member or a friend. Makes a good house warming gift too! Just match the colors to their bathroom. The color you used for the Rose and Ruffle color doesn’t take much yarn either, so it’s a great way to bust your stash.

Connecting your pieces

 

It makes it so much easier to mark your piece for sewing when you have then on the toilet paper roll, so go grab one and put the side piece on, Make sure the stitches are going in the right direction! Then grab your top piece and set it on top. Use front or back side, whichever way you like best.

 

I cut bits of string from my secondary color to use as marker holders here.

 

There are more Puff Stitches on the Side piece than there are on the Top piece so you won’t be able to line the puffs exactly perfectly, but you can for a lot of them. Do the best you can.

 

Then insert your hook under a stitch on both pieces and put a tail here to hold it in place. Repeat this around the whole piece until it’s all tied down. This will help keep it in place as you sew, as well as help you crochet more evenly. Once you have it marked then remove the toilet paper roll for the sewing portion.

 

I DID NOT turn my piece inside out. I like the more even border it leaves behind.

 

Create a slip knot with your MAIN COLOR again and insert your hook going in through a stitch on both pieces, Pull up a loop, 2 loops on your hook, YO and pull through both loops to create your SC attachment.

 

*Ch 1, skip a stitch and SC in next * repeat to attach. Remove your markers as you go.

 

 

 

A tip on keeping your sewing even

Now while your pieces aren’t perfectly aligned, I did find a way to keep it more even at the start anyway.

 

I attached my yarn at a place where my puff stitches were aligned on both V Puff stitches on my Side piece and Top Piece and did my SC attachment there. Then SC and ch 1 on both sides of my DC’s on the Side piece which ended on in the same ch 2 space on my TOP piece. Doing that helped me stay a bit more even, but as I said the pieces aren’t perfectly aligned, so you can only get away with it a few times. Just wanted to mention it encase it helps you keep it more even.

Once your done attaching both pieces, then it’s time to make the bottom ruffle so turn your piece over. We’ll be crocheting on the bottom side of the stitch.

 

 

 

 

Creating the Bottom Ruffle

Grab your SECONDARY color now.

I used both loops of the stitch when crocheting here at the bottom.

TCFS attach your yarn to any stitch on the bottom of your piece. TRC 2 more times in this same stitch.

* TRC 3 in all your sts around *

To end: ch 1 and leaving a bit of a tail that can be hidden later with a tapestry needle, cut your yarn.
